From 1981 Loverboy “Turn Me Loose” If you ever wished for designer Calvin Klein underwear, just like Marty McFly, if you ever told someone to make like a tree and get outta here or If you ever got a Deloren up to 88 Miles per hour, you are on the right station, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1985 INXS “What You Need”
From 1987 Belinda Carlisle “Heaven is A Place on Earth” If you ever got hit in the face by a dodge ball but had no one to cry to since you were a latchkey kid, if you ever pulled up alongside a limo and asked whether they had any Grey Poupon or if you had a Teddy Ruxpin but slept with him in the closet because he freaked you out at night , you are in the right place, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1986 Bananarama “Venus”
Here is the answer to the timeline, in which year did the following things take place?

Julia and Suzanne Sugarbaker teamed up with a few other Designing Women to give Atlanta a run for its money.
& Chunk perfected his Truffle Shuffle and gave us all a craving for a Baby Ruth in The Goonies, in 1985, and that year, The Hooters were nominated for the Best New Artist award at the MTV Music Awards thanks for their biggest hit, “And We Danced”
From 1987 Icehouse “Electric Blue” If you could be the Walrus, but you'd still have to bum rides off people, if David Bowie has no power over you despite his tight leather pants, if you still do the gopher dance every time you hear the song from Caddyshack, this is the show for you, it's the 80's at 8, from 1983 Michael Jackson “Billie Jean”
From 1984 Twisted Sister “We’re Not Gonna Take It” If you still want to give a paternity test to My Two Dads, If you couldn't figure out why no one but that nosy neighbor didn't see that Small Wonder's Vickie was a robot, or If you've ever used the word "inconceivable!" and you still don't know what it means, you are in the right place, this is the 80’s at 8, from 1982 A Flock of Seagulls’ “I Ran (So Far Away)”
From 1981 Hall & Oates “You Make My Dreams” If you've ever cajoled a stuffy relative into doing the Dance of Joy, if you're still not sure if Pop Rocks and Coke is a deadly combination but you're not willing to chance it, or if you cried when David Hasselhoff took down the Berlin Wall with the power of his music, this is the show for you, it is the 80's at 8, from 1983 David Bowie “China Girl”
